holder is made from a piece of
felt. It is meant to hold tissues in your purse or backpack. It will
hold a travel size tissue pack or you can fold up tissues yourself to
store inside of it. This is an easy craft, but it does require some
sewing. This makes it a good craft project for a child or adult who is
just learning to sew. This travel pack also makes a perfect Mother's
Day gift or birthday gift! With all the different patterns of felt
available, you can get really creative with the end result!
- A piece
- Embroidery floss and needle
pieces of felt and buttons for
- Pinking shears
1. Begin by cutting out a rectangle of felt to fit your travel size
tissues, using pinking shears. A 6 X 7 inch rectangle works for the
most common size of tissues, and is what I used for this project.
2. Fold each long edge of the felt over the tissue pack, as if you are
wrapping a present. Make sure the felt fits and overlaps only slightly.
If it overlaps too much, do some trimming. Then remove the tissues, and
get ready to sew. Divide the embroidery floss to two or three threads
in thickness, then begin to sew the short edges together. Be sure to
hide the knot in the inside of the holder.
3. Sew a simple basting stitch, trying your best to keep all the
stitches even. Sew along each short edge. There is no need to sew
across the middle where the edges meet, because you need some room to
put the tissues in.
4. Next you can add on any felt embellishments you choose. Here I cut a
flower shape out of a contrasting color of felt, added a button, and
sewed it to the tissue holder. You may want to try embroidering a name
on the felt.
